THe bouncing is normal because all four tires are spinning so when you go to make a tight turn the font tires tend to kick because the usually don't have any power behind them in 2x4

You really shouldn't drive in 4 wheel drive on dry pavement - wait til your on the dirt or the road is at least wet. That lunging puts stress on the 4 wheel drive components.

You need the inside tire to slip to turn smoothly in 4 wheel drive.
